    iCloud backup storage size

    Why did iCloud backup tell me I needed to upgrade from the free 5gb plan but then once I had upgraded the backup size is just 319mb? Have Apple duped me into paying for an upgrade I don’t need.

    Managing Photo Library in Apple ecosystem

    Bit of a sanity check post, plus some vain hope I'm missing an easier way. After a week twiddling my thumbs and being driven mad by the kids, I thought I'd use the lockdown to slowly address those tasks i've been forever putting off.
